There's has been a lot happening. I have thought a lot about how to write it down here... so here's a bit, or a lot... whichever comes out.
I now find myself back in Vankie, after spending the last 2 months in Seattle. I drove up with Frank this morning, and everyone was very nice and polite at the Immigration office. We even talked about how I might be able to get a Nexus pass for quick processing at the border if I am planning to cross it a lot.
Oh - the sequence is out of whack.
Monday: I went to the Canadian Consulate in Seattle, and was granted a work permit to return to Vankie, after a wide variety of fear/angst/paranoia ridden events during the past 6 months.
This past week: I have been in a state of numb sort of shock, not quite understanding that there's nothing for me to worry about anymore. Saying goodbye hurriedly to many dear friends that I now have in Seattle, all the while knowing that I can just pop down the 5 anytime for a visit.
Friday: I arrived in Vankie. Anyone know of a good sublet?
I'm an Australian designer who specialises in digital and cultural work. Most of my career thus far has been on the web, but I'm excited that it's starting to creep out into the real world.
I am the founder of Museum in a Box, making interactive museum objects with simple, fun tech, for wide-as-possible distribution, and I own a company called Good, Form & Spectacle, making design in service to cultural heritage for clients like The British Museum, MoMA, and the Wellcome Trust.
